FINE FOR OVERDUE BOOKS

All books borrowed from the library should be returned on the due date. A fine of Rupee one  (Rs. 1/=) would be levied for each day overdue.  The due should be paid to the library and a receipt obtained.

LOSS OF A BORROWED BOOK

Loss of a borrowed book should be immediately informed to the librarian. If the book is not found within two weeks the borrower is responsible for the loss of the particular book. He/She has either replace the lost book by providing a copy of it or pay the loss book (A photo copy will not be accepted as a replacement).  Please note that there is a particular criterion to calculate the cost for the lost book. On this calculation it is possible that one may have to pay many times more than the original cost of the book.

RELEASE    FROM    LIBRARY RESPONSIBILITY

If a reader has not returned the borrowed books to the library, the fine against the same will be charged from the refundable library fee.
